Profile

I am an Associate Professor of Accounting at Macquarie University, Sydney. I worked for over 15 years as an independent business consultant across a wide range of industries before joining academia after completing my Ph.D. in 2008. My Ph.D. entitled Intellectual Capital in Action: Australian Studies won the prestigious Emerald/EFMD Outstanding Doctoral Research Award for 2008 for the Knowledge Management category. I continue to research on the topic of intellectual capital, non-financial accounting and reporting, innovation, research methods and academic writing. My research activities link closely to management, accounting, and scholarly practice.

Since starting my thesis in 2006, I have achieved an outstanding record as the author or co-author of over 60 peer-reviewed academic journal articles, publishing in prestigious journals such as Accounting Auditing and Accountability Journal, British Accounting Review, Journal of Intellectual Capital, Public Management Review and forthcoming articles in Financial Accountability and Management and The Journal of Business Ethics. I have co-authored with many authors from different countries such as Australia, Italy, USA, Canada, Russia and China. My current research activities include projects in Australia, Japan, Germany and Italy.

I have four times won Highly Commended Paper awards for the Journal of Intellectual Capital (2008, 2013, 2014 and 2015), twice for the Journal of Accounting and Organizational Change (2014, 2016) and once for the Journal of Knowledge Management (2016). I also won the Outstanding Reviewer Award for the VINE journal (2013), Journal of Accounting and Organizational Change (2015) and Accounting, Auditing and Accountability Journal (2016). I have also twice won the Emerald Journals Citations of Excellence Award (2015, 2016)

I am currently the Associate Editor of the Journal of Intellectual Capital, and Meditari Accountancy Research, and the Editor of the Electronic Journal of Knowledge Management. I am also a member of the Editorial Board of Advice for the Accounting Auditing and Accountability Journal, Journal of Knowledge Management, VINE: The Journal of Information and Knowledge Management Systems, Managerial Auditing Journal and Journal of Accounting and Organizational Change. I was three times a Guest Editor of a special issue of the Journal of Intellectual Capital (2013, Vol. 14 No 1; 2015 Vol. 16 No 2 and 2017, Vol 18, no 1) and a have forthcoming special issues in 2018 and 2019. I am also editing another special issue for the ABDC A-ranked Critical Perspectives on Accounting.

While I have published in prestigious journals, the variety and impact of these publications is noteworthy. As at 14 November, 2017 I have 3252 citations for my work (see https://scholar.google.com.au/citations?user=zKFxle4AAAAJ&hl=en). In unpublished research by Grant Samkin (University of Waikato), I am the most cited Australian accounting academic since 2012. From the variety perspective, I have published papers on social and environmental accounting, intellectual capital, research methods and academic writing, with several papers winning awards for quality. The following table lists the impact of my best publications:

Highly Commended Paper - Journal of Intellectual Capital Awards for Excellence 2008

Since 2009 I have secured over $119,000 in competitive research funding for four research projects. Each of the completed projects has led to the publication of one or more papers. My current research activities include projects on the topics of intellectual capital accounting, the production and consumption of accounting, Integrated Reporting, the EU Directive on Non-financial Reporting and academic writing.

The latter project has been extremely successful and has gained much interest from my academic colleagues. Papers based on this research have been published in the world leading Accounting, Auditing and Accountability Journal and the Pacific Accounting Review. Because of my interest in academic writing, I featured in an article in the Times Higher Education Supplement (6/9/2012)0F[1] and in Helen Sword’s latest book on academic Air & Light & Time & Space: How Successful Academics Write[2] as a successful academic writer who challenges traditional academic writing conventions. Evidence of the popularity and impact of this research is that we present the research at universities across the world including Australia, New Zealand, Italy, Denmark, Germany, Sweden and Russia.
